Timekeeping via SMS

Now no more lost revenues due to missed timekeeping. Use your iPhone, Android or any mobile phone to log your billable time. You can simply send a text message to CaseFox in a simple specific format and the time note will be automatically entered into your account. Even better, you can save abbreviations (under Settings of your CaseFox account) and use them in these text messages. 

No changes to your account are needed except one. You will need to enter phone numbers of your staff (under the Staff tab in your CaseFox account). These phone numbers must be the numbers from which these staff members will be sending SMS messages to CaseFox. We will identify the user and your account by these phone numbers when we receive text messages. These phone numbers will not be used for any other purposes.

Nevrivy Patent Law Group P.L.L.C.

"Our firm has been using CaseFox now for a few months, to accommodate the needs of one of our clients who requested LEDES compliant invoices. However, we have been so pleased with CaseFox that we have migrated all of our timekeeping/invoicing over to this platform for all of our clients. The user interface is easy to operate, and there are several features which have improved our timekeeping, invoicing and payment tracking efficiency. We recommend the service."

Albite Law Group

"The company I work for needed a timekeeping/billing system and we came across Casefox on the Google apps. We are extremely pleased. The system is very fast to work with and it was super easy to learn. Most importantly, we are very pleased with their customer service. We have asked for many small changes to meet our needs and they immediately responded. Thank you!"

Entering Time and Expense in CaseFox

1. To enter an hourly billing item, enter the time (either hours/minutes or tenth hours format) in the provided boxes. System will automatically calculate the amount based on your hourly rates. (by the way, you can set different hourly rates for different cases. Click on the “Staff Access/Rates” tab, select a user, an “Edit” link will appear next to the hourly fee amount. If you don’t set a different hourly rate for a user, the user’s global hourly rates will be used automatically. 

2. To enter a flat fee item, simply enter the amount in “Total Cost” box and don’t enter anything in the “time” boxes. (this item will displayed as a “Flat” fee item on the invoice. Do not check the “expense” checkbox. 

3. To enter an expense, click on the expense checkbox (and leave Billable checked). Enter number of units in the box shown and then enter the total cost in the “Total Cost” box. For example, if you want to enter charges for 10 copies @ .20c/copy, enter “10” in the “Units” box and then enter “2” in the total cost box. This item will be shown as an expense in the invoice.

Tips:

1. When entering expenses, make sure to also check [ ] Billable checkbox if you intend the entered expense to be included in an invoice. If you don’t check the Billable checkbox, the note will not be presented for invoicing. 
2. Click on “Cases” tab, select a case in the left panel bar. Then scroll down to the bottom on the rightside note listing. If you see an amount in “Non-Billable” category, you should review your time/expense entries. You may have not checked [ ] Billable checkbox in one or more notes. Of course, it is ok if you intentionally unchecked the Billable checkbox. 
3. For entering expenses, Select [ ] Expense checkbox and notice a slightly changed screen. in “Units” box, enter number of units (enter 1, if this is a flat expense, such as Court Filing Fees). For example, to enter 10 copies @.15/copy, enter “10” in “Units” box and then enter “1.50” in “Total Cost” box. 
4. If you have already created an invoice, you can delete it, edit the note(s) and then generate the invoice again.

Setting Different Hourly Rates For Different Cases

Click on “Cases (Projects)” tab on the top of the page. In the left panel, select a desired case. On the right side panel, click on “Grant Access/Set Rates” tab. On the screen, check the checkbox in front of a staff name. An “Edit” link will appear. Click on that link to enter a new rate. Click Update. This process will do two things, first, if the selected staff is not an administrator, the selected staff will now have access to this case (administrators have access to all cases automatically). Second, a new hourly rate (only for this case) for the selected staff will be set.
